To improve sustainability, the ASCIA 2023 Conference will feature:

The ASCIA 2023 Conference will provide an international standard of continuing professional development (CPD) for ASCIA members and other health professionals working in allergy and clinical immunology, as well as an opportunity for in-person interactions with colleagues.
